Today I was supposed to post a Too Long; Do Read feature for May about one of Rise Records' latest outputs in Misser, but I wasn't able to finish up a worthy article on time. Instead of doing nothing with the idea though, I decided to post an interview from the process. The band recently released its first full-length, Every Day I Tell Myself I'm Going To Be A Better Person, so I talk to Tim Landers and Brad Wiseman about how they started working together and what it's like to juggle this project with Transit and This Time Next Year.
Steve Soboslai admits that he's pretentious. As if fronting Punchline wasn't enough, he also releases his own music under the name Blue of Colors.

Adam Lambert, last week's No. 1, dropped 70% in sales to the No. 11 spot, while fun. remained strong, adding almost 11,000 more sales to its total of Some Nights and rising from No. 33 to 27. Notable debuts included Sara Bareilles at No. 8 with 31,000 of Once Upon Another Time and Kimbra at No. 12 with 22,000 of Vows.
